Ray RAY, a male grey seal, was picked up from Widemouth Bay on the 12th of October 2001, approximately three weeks of age.

He was fairly malnourished and found at the top end of the beach, as far away from the water as possible with his nose pressed up against the side of a rock face.

When he first arrived at the sanctuary it was apparent that his behaviour was a little different to the other pups.
The Animal Care Team are monitoring him closely to see how he reacts with other seals and how well he competes for his fish. He is very quiet and brain damage has not been ruled out, the vet also drew attention to the shape of Ray´s head, which is very different to the other pups.

It may be that Ray suffered trauma to this area as a pup, possibly crushed by an adult bull? Further tests revealed he is brain damaged, so he has been given a permanent home at the sanctuary.

Each Adoption makes a valuable contribution to the seal rescue programme, allowing the Sanctuary to provide continuing care for those seals and other marine mammals around our coasts that need our help and to look after those that are unable to be released back into the wild.
